In this paper, two basic low voltage d.c. network alternatives for replacing a.c. distribution networks, are compared. The discussed alternatives are Full-DC and Link-Type (hybrid) a.c./d.c. solutions. The objective of the paper is to determine guidelines for selecting the suitable option for different use cases. To find out the main factors affecting the selection, case examples are calculated and analysed. The results of the paper
summarise the findings based on which the distribution system operator may estimate the applicability of the two d.c. solutions within their supply area.
